Unidentified Aircraft with Names #9
NA9 #8b THE FALCON RETURNS is thought to be a 389th BG aircraft. There is something odd though. The brighter patch has many holes where rivets have been removed and matches the location where the 8AF cockpit armour would have been and so the left hand part of the name has been repainted after it was removed. The 'match' isn't perfect either, reinforcing this idea. Usually it's the other way around - the armour gets added OVER the name, and why was this essential 8AF protection removed?
